A few months ago I made a public commitment to kick the crap out of diabetes. The support I have received from Facebook and others has been awesome.

In just a couple short months I have gone from 5 insulin shots at max dose a day and a handful of other diabetic meds to ZERO diabetic medication. All I take is some protein powder, a multivitamin, some B-12 and some serious healthy eating and exercise.

I owe this all to a group of in person and on line accountability partners. IF anyone would like to follow my Diabetic Journey you can find me on facebook and my blog at wordpress. Every week I post my updated pics, goals, successes and failures.

I need all the support I can get so if you are diabetic or know someone who is then come and support me or get the support you need to start your own journey.

Are you willing to do what it takes to make today the day yesterday could have been?

Hi Doug,

Congratulations on your success so far! I'm new to this site too. I don't have diabetes, but your post caught my attention. Are you familiar with the documentary "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days"? It follows the story of several people with diabetes who experienced dramatic turnarounds after adopting a raw vegan diet. I don't follow a vegan diet myself (and don't necessarily promote it), but I did find the film very interesting. You can check it out at www.rawfor30days.com.

What a great success story. My husband is a Type 1 diabetic. I wish there was something we could do about that but at least yours is able to be controlled! Awesome work!

Congratulations. I identify with your journey. My dad and my uncle both died from heart disease with Type 2 diabetes, and I got the news last summer that my fasting blood sugar was a bit high, and that it was time to get really serious about keeping diabetes at bay. My last fasting blood sugar was 105, which is still high, but my HA1C is normal, so my doctor is pretty pleased with me. But there's still much work to be done. I want my blood sugar below 100. So...shoedoug, I look up to you as a role model, and I will follow your journey more closely.
